Steve DiBenedetto’s new paintings at David Nolan have the super-charged jangling energy of previous work, but he’s working looser, scraping down and thinning the paint to create a less clotty version of his networked schematics, underground bunkers, and knotty roadways. Finally, there’s room to breath.
“Steve DiBenedetto: Who Wants to Know?” David Nolan, New York, NY. Through Jan 8, 2011.
“A certain amount of total disregard for the logic of the painting.”
